Crisis Media Training

Your business is in the news. You might be facing strike action. Perhaps a new product launch hasn’t gone according to plan. Your profits aren’t what the market expected. The phone goes and it’s the BBC, Sky News and CNN all wanting to speak to you. An ill-judged word in a TV interview could cause years of hard work to evaporate. Are you ready to face the cameras? Do you know how to survive this potential and very public crisis or turn it to your advantage? We can guide you through this period or train you to help prepare for it. We can deliver this training in a highly effective way via video conference which includes recording interviews, playback and review. All delegates need is their own laptop or tablet. Video conference training allows us to deliver last-minute training – whatever the distance.
